We all need a helping hand sometimes. Someone to point us in the right direction. To be a sounding board and a fresh perspective. To help us fill in the blanks in our plans for the future.
That’s where the Alumni Mentor Program can help, connecting University of Phoenix students to volunteer UOPX alumni for one-on-one mentorships. The program’s mentors know first-hand how to capitalize on the value of a University of Phoenix education.
What outcomes do successful mentorships create?
Success is as unique as each mentee's mentorship goal—something the mentee and mentor work on together. Success often includes increased career insights, a broader professional network, renewed motivation and inspiration, and idea generation to help mentees remove career roadblocks.

What if I don't want to work one-on-one?
The program offers forums where program participants can post questions to the mentor/mentee community at-large, expanding the potential for a mentee to find the support and guidance they are seeking.
